ISN hosted two programs focused on Japanese barberry this season; Japanese Barberry Dumpster Days and Japanese Barberry Buyback. Both events were a success!
Japanese Barberry Dumpster Days
Two events were held; one in Grand Traverse County at the Grand Traverse Conservation District and one in Manistee County in collaboration with the Manistee Conservation District. Over 125 plants were collected during both events.
Japanese Barberry Business Buyback
Thirteen businesses participated in this event which included removal of their Japanese barberry and replacement with native species. One-hundred-forty-four Japanese barberry were removed and replaced with natives. ISN was able to provide this service at no-cost to the participants with funds from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
